Firefighters extinguished a two-alarm house fire in Elmhurst on Saturday afternoon.
The fire started in the second-floor walls at a two-and-a-half-story residence at 83-26 St. James Ave. in Elmhurst at approximately 2:41 p.m. on Feb. 25. FDNY responded to the scene with 25 units consisting of 106 fire personnel.
According to a battalion chief at the scene, the fire extended into the second floor and attic. As fire raced through the walls, responding FDNY personnel also dealt with a heavy clutter condition throughout the building.
Fire suppression teams operated four hose-lines to knock down the fire, according to the battalion chief, who added that searches throughout the residence yielded negative results.
The fire was placed under control at 4:04 p.m., according to FDNY.
There were no injuries reported, the battalion chief said.
As of Sunday morning, FDNY said fire marshals are still investigating the cause of the fire.
